In the name of God, the almighty
A word from the Persian translator
The history of Islam and knowledge of its famous and important personalities serve as anecessary starting point of departure for an understanding of the main text of Islam. We mayeven venture to claim that without a proper and exact understanding of the history of Islam,one cannot get a true feeling of the facts and realities of this faith. For, on the one hand,knowledge of the great and well-known Islamic personalities and their ideas, conducts anddeeds which form a part of the text of religion and which are translated into the term"tradition", is not possible without a knowledge of the time, place, customs, habits and moralsof their contemporaries, and on the other hand an understanding of the characters opposingIslam reveals the perspicacity Islam, and shows the manner of the combats and strivings ofIslam and leaders against the wicked and wickedness.In view of the importance of this principal fact we see what the role of a true history and itsworth and position are in the religious Life of the Muslims. We realize to what extent aknowledge of historical facts helps us in our clear understanding of the realities of our religion,and after being alien for many centuries from the rise of the bright sun of Islam, to whatextent we are capable of noticing this brilliant light and how close we are getting to thisfountain virtues.In the coming pages we shall see how the history andtradition of Islam have become subject to the plots of sensualists, and how far falsehood andalterations have found their way into them.(7) History and texts of traditions were greatlyaltered and misinterpreted by the hands of these plotters who were supported by the Umayyadrulers, particularly by Mu'awiyah himself. Every day that went by in the life of Islam, fresh lieswere added to the enormous collection of falsehoods, to such an extent that the brilliant sunof God's religion seemed, little by little, to have become obscured under so many lies andforgeries. It is here that the constancy and self-sacrifices of the Imams of the Prophet'shousehold act as savior of Islam, and these noble personalities and their devoted Shi'ahfollowers rise to protect Islam, and engage in their perpetual and bloody combat with forgersand their supporters.On the other hand the sentinels of paganism, namely the Umayyad and Abbasid caliphs,endeavour to preserve the falsehoods which have been fabricated especially in the time ofMu'awiyah, and even to spread them more widely every moment, since the foundation of theircaliphate is nothing but dishonesty. In the battlefield of right and wrong, this combat betweenthe party of God and Satan's never ends, and no period is free from it.In our own time, a keen-eyed scholar has with his penetrating. insightfulness taken a great stepto draw a line between truth and falsehood, and he has obliterated from the scene of historyhundreds of falsehoods and alteration. Forty years of continual research in first-hand texts ofhistory and tradition has led the scholar Sayyid Murtada 'Askari to certain facts, which arepublished in a series of research volumes entitled "Dirasat fi al-hadith wa at-tarikh". His dailyscrutiny, reflection and labor have enabled him to unearth from thick layers of forgeries manytrue facts of Islam, and to place them at the disposal of seekers of truth in the world.Indeed now the big idols and high barriers in the way of a proper understanding of the history
